Hint: The picture was taken in 1956....
It's a hard disk drive back in 1956... With 5 MegaBytes of storage.
In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first 'SUPER' computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD weighed over a ton and stored a 'whopping' 5 MB of data.
Do you appreciate your 8 GigaBytes (8,000 Megabytes) memory stick a little more now?
